just loaded mine up for a 24F night tonight. been warm. she's been sitting idle for a few days. cleaned the glass good and loaded it up with red oak. we are really enjoying this stove. as backwoods said, it truly is a beautiful stove. very relaxing experience so far!! gotta love a stove that pretty much always has coals in it up to 24hrs. that way if you are running late some eve it will be ready to roll when you get in.
